Genesis 31:9

Genesis 31:9

Thus God hath taken away the cattle of your father
Not all of them, see ( Genesis 31:19 ) ; but a great part of them; his flock was much lessened by those means, and more were taken away, and came to Jacob's share, than if Laban had abode by the original agreement: and gave [them] to me;
who has the disposing of all things in the world, whose the world, and all in it, are, and gives of it to the sons of men as he pleases. Jacob takes no notice of any artifice of his, or of any means and methods he made use of, but wholly ascribes all to the providence of God, and points to his wives the hand of God only; and indeed it seems to be by his direction that he took the method he did, as appears from ( Genesis 31:11-13 ) .
